TEAPOT TUESDAY - Off to Kansas

This week, our card is off to Debbie in KS. She is experiencing Liver failure - and has never been a drinker. Really stinks when you think you are doing everything right and something like this comes along. We're hoping our cards can cheer her up.

Here's the details:

I am trying to use of stash. Back in 2011, I was enticed into an Inspiration Kit Swap group by my bestie, Soni from Soni's Front Porch. She wanted to encourage me to play so she sent me a kit like she had sent out to the group that month.

Here is the note she included:

I am in belief that not only bad things come in threes, so let's see if we can prove that!

I am sending the same images in 3 different colors or way, with directions to do each differently. I hope you have fun. 

1 - One card in soft and pretty design and colors.
2 - One card to show me a color to show off the Groovy Guava (the designer DP she included)
3 - One card to be as different as you like - BUT please use "3". These can be 3 brads/ 3 different colors, 3 layers, etc. 

The 3 things that MUST be a part of each card:
Best creative imagination
Dig into your supplies. 

On the back she said:
Can you use 3 Tools/ 3 layouts/ 3 layers
Let's TRIPLE the FUN!

I used the tea pot and cups she had stamped in Memento Black on Very Vanilla. I layered that with the Groovy Guava (retired SU) she included with Pear Pizazz (retired SU). I gave the corners a wrought iron decorative with an EK success corner punch and added metal dots from Colorbok.

I colored the cups and tea pot with colored pencils. I used a light touch so they would be soft to coordinate with the card stock color. I also brushed the edge of the image mat with SU Blushing Bride (I did not have Groovy Guava ink)

Creative Blessings!
